Good Advice from an Old Farmer…. and Albert Einstein!

Good Advice from an Old Farmer…. and Albert Einstein!

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Homegrown’s all right with me
Homegrown is the way it should be
Homegrown is a good thing
Plant that bell and let it ring
The sun comes up in the morning
Shines that light around
One day, without no warning
Things start jumping up from the ground
“Homegrown” by Neil Young

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.” – Albert Einstein

“Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist,
widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest physicists of all time.
Einstein is known for developing the Theory of Relativity,
but he also made important contributions to the development of
the Theory of Quantum Mechanics.” – wikipedia

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over
again and expecting different results.”
– Albert Einstein

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered… not yelled.

“A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin;
what else does a man need to be happy?” – Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921
for the discovery of the photoelectric effect.
He received his Nobel Prize for 1921 one year later, in 1922.

Meanness don’t jes’ happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes with their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

“Great spirits have always encountered
violent opposition from mediocre minds.”
– Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein
March 14, 1879 – April 18, 1955
Albert Einstein grew up in Munich and became a German citizen in 1914.
He renounced his German citizenship for political reasons in 1933.
He emigrated to the United States and took a job as a Professor
of Theoretical Physics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey.

“Look deep into nature,
and then you will understand everything better.”
– Albert Einstein

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain’t never gonna happen anyway.

Don’t judge folks by their relatives.

“Science can flourish only
in an atmosphere of free speech.”
– Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was married twice
and had three children from his first wife.

Live a good, honorable life…
Then when you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second time.

Don‘t interfere with somethin’ that ain’t bothering you none.

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain Dance.

If you find yourself in a hole,
the first thing to do is stop diggin’.

“Try not to become a man of success,
but rather try to become a man of value.”
– Albert Einstein

“Life is like riding a bicycle.
To keep your balance you must keep moving.” 
– Albert Einstein

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get “got”.

The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have to deal with,
watches you from the mirror every mornin’.

Good judgment comes from experience,
and a lotta that experience comes from bad judgment.

Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.

Grow food, not lawns.

“A happy man is too satisfied with the present
to dwell too much on the future.” – Albert Einstein

If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence,
try orderin’ someone else’s dog around..

Live simply. Love generously.
Care deeply. Speak kindly.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man.
If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.

Most times, it just comes down to common sense.

“The important thing is not to stop questioning.
Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”
– Albert Einstein

and not everything that can be counted counts.”

Oh, Mother Earth
With your fields of green
Once more laid down
By the hungry hand
How long can you
Give and not receive
And feed this world
Ruled by greed
“Mother Earth” by Neil Young

MAH “Dear Jerry” Postcard – front

“Dear Mister Fantasy play us a tune
Something to make us all happy
Do anything take us out of this gloom
Sing a song, play guitar
Make it snappy
You are the one who can make us all laugh
But doing that you break out in tears
Please don’t be sad if it was a straight mind you had
We wouldn’t have known you all these years”
– “Dear Mr Fantasy”

12:55am: We took the dogs outside. And now they’re sleeping.

5:20am: And we are still awake five hours later.
We ate a slice of banana bread with a little melted butter.
We took the dogs outside and now they are in the bedroom sleeping.

Happy Jerry Day 2021!

8:30am: We drank an iced espresso. We prepped the dogs’ breakfast.
We did a load of laundry. Wash, dry, and fold.
We got the newspapers (the delivery was late this morning).
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
Now they’re back in the bedroom while we become Chore Boy.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

11:55am: Chore boy didn’t do sh*t. He took a short nap.
And then we woke up and took the dogs outside at 11:20am.
We played with the dogs and now they’re back in the bedroom again.


WTF? There was a strange woman walking on the street out front of the house behaving strange, She walked through the bushes on the side of the house, so we investigated, but we didn’t see anything out of place.

12:15pm: It’s HOT today, and it’s only Noon.
And it’s going to be HOT all week in the SFV:

We drank an iced espresso and now we’re thinking about “Brunch”.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZ. Nappy time again.

3:10pm: We took a short nap. We woke up.
We ate the four leftover slices of pizza (two cold, and two warm).
We took the dogs outside. It’s really HOT out now. Currently 96 degrees F.
The “F” is for FUCKING HOT as well as for Fahrenheit.
Now we’re chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office again with the AC on
and watching the Olympics on TV.

9:40pm: Sunday night. Watching the Olympics on TV.
We drank another iced espresso.
And we’re almost ready to make some dinner.

1:55am on Monday morning. We still haven’t eaten dinner.
Just a “Simple Twist of Fate” we guess.
Must be the “Moonlight Madness” tonight.
Or we might be “Tangled Up In Blue” too.
We took the dogs outside and then we played with the dogs.
They were with us in the Home Office as we worked on a new Blog Post.
We just took them outside again and put them in the bedroom.
And so, we are recapping this Blog Post “After Midnight” now.

11:00pm: Wednesday night recap of Wednesday. It was HOT.
The dogs got fed, and they went outside, and they had a great day.
We got dressed and drove the car to the Sushi restaurant and picked up dinner.
And that’s about the most exciting thing that happened here today.
The gardener came. The pool guy came. We slept most of the day away.

There was a pursuit in Fontana this afternoon,
but it was pretty much slow speed and stupid.
In the end the police pulled her out of the car. Suspect in custody.
Screen Shot 2021-07-28 at 18.45.00

And there was another pursuit late last night!
Guy on a moped/mini-bike went for a long ride with the police behind him,
even went the wrong way on the freeway,
until he ended up in Whittier Narrows park where he WIPED OUT
and ended up in the dirt. Suspect in custody.

May the Four Winds blow him safely home.


Remembering the “Neenster” on the sixth anniversary of her final day on this world
which was actually the 25th-26th, so we are a couple days late….
She just sent us a message as a reminder, and she will never be forgotten.

Thursday, July 29, 2021 – the 210th day of the year
International Tiger Day!

199703019_4142758069125427_5062278677667916700_n

12:20am: We took the dog outside.
We made and ate a “banana split” for a satisfying midnight dessert.

On The Menu: 2 scoops of Haagen-Daaz vanilla ice cream,
a small frozen banana (sliced), chocolate syrup, and whipped cream
222962379_4982007605159099_6772987262295625413_n

4:02am: We are still awake. The dog is sleeping on the bed.
The other dogs are in the bedroom sleeping. It’s really quiet.
We slept all day and took a nap in the evening.
Our sleep cycle and sleep patterns are truly messed up.
Today is Thursday. “IS THIS A WEEKDAY?”

8:30am: We fell asleep with the dog after 5:00am.
We turned on a podcast, crawled into bed, and fell asleep.
We woke up around 7:15am.


Well, it seems someone was breaking into cars and prowling homes and yards down the street this morning around 4:00am while we were still awake in the Home Office. They never made it down to our end of the block, maybe because they were spooked by the newspaper delivery guy or maybe because the neighbors alerted. So we talked with a detective from the LAPD out in the street this morning. There was a Home Invasion the other night less than a mile away that made the TV news and the Citizen App, and there have been a few others in the mid-valley recently. A lot of local property crime, armed robberies, and violent crimes connected to the “unhoused” that live along Ventura Blvd and in the Sepulveda Reservoir. And organized gangs are back in the valley looking for targets and victims. Crime has been getting a lot worse in the San Fernando Valley recently. We chased a guy out of the driveway when he was trying to steal the Mercedes (that we were about to return the dealer) in November 2020 (read the previous Blog Post). And those guys were pros and probably connected to the construction crew working across the street, because we haven’t had any problems with sketchy characters since they finished, until last night.

There’s been an underground poker game running out of the house on the corner for a couple months, and there was a game the other night. Usually 20-30 nice cars parked on the cross street, and a “doorman” in the driveway, when they are playing at house. And that’s also the corner where the guys were prowling around last night. We live in a very  “crime-free” neighborhood for the most part, so we take notice of strangers and any criminal activity is cause for concern. The violent Home Invasions have a West LA LAPD TASK FORCE working on the investigation, so they were canvasing our street along with the regular West Valley Division detectives. FUCK. One more thing.


The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We got the newspapers and made an iced espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. Be Vigilant.

9:35am: We just made another iced espresso and then
we left a message for the detective who left his card on our front door.

A Tsunami warning was issued for parts of Alaska this morning
after an earthquake with a magnitude of ~8.2 occurred off the coast.

11:15am: We took the dogs outside. We got the mail. The housekeeper is here.
And we are chilling’ with the dogs in the Home Office until she is finished.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

3:15pm: Well, we took a nap with the dogs. The housekeeper left.
We took the dogs outside. We made another iced espresso. It’s HOT out.
And it’s Thursday afternoon. We have to keep reminding ourself.

5:40pm: FUCK. FUCK. FUCK. (at 5:00pm again)
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.

Recapping Thursday night.
Chopped chicken salad delivered. Ate half, saved half.
Fell asleep. Woke up. Took the dog outside.

BOMBSHELL NEWS! 
Simone Biles, the US Gymnastic Champion, pulled out of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics event for mental health reasons (and physical health reasons because a mistake on the uneven bars, vault, or balance beam can be very bad). Most people applauded her decision and it’s now really big media news. Some people didn’t support her decision, and some even made jokes (like Michael Ché) and now they’re the target of American “cancel culture”.
And then US Gymnast Suni Lee won the Gold Medal and became our newest “American Hero”.


12:30am: Time for dinner.
We had leftover salad, so we used it for tacos.
On The Menu: 2 chicken chopped salad tacos
228013841_4987695291256997_115587041296690013_n

9:05am: We were up all morning and fell asleep around dawn.
And then we woke up.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We took a shower. We got dressed.

10:30am: We ran a couple errands. We went to our PO Box.
We went to the bank, and we went inside.
We contacted one masked person behind thick acrylic, the teller.
It’s a beautiful day in the SFV and it’s going to be HOT again.
We drove home. We got undressed.
And now we’re wearing our sweat shorts again.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

7:40pm: Recapping Friday. Good Shabbos! It was HOT today.
We ate a little green jello with whipped cream. Then we took a nap.
We slept all afternoon. The dogs got fed and went outside.
We made an iced espresso.

227779331_4987697011256825_6386472113867311452_n

It’s Friday night again. Another weekend for a week without end.
Seriously, what the F*CK? And how is it the END OF JULY already?
Tempus fugit. Time flies.

8:25pm: And we just played “fetch” with the little boy for a half hour.

On The Menu: Cubano sandwich with garlic chicken, dill pickle, avocado,
carrot and celery sticks, watermelon, and cherries for dinner,
with cran-raspberry-orange juice and an iced espresso to drink.
222567585_4988261107867082_5703723456577375227_n

Dogs, TV, Tokyo Olympics, the interweb, YouTube vids, and writing Blog Posts
on Friday night to stay busy and entertained in the Home Office.

10:11am: One more Saturday morning.
We were awake until after 6:00am this morning.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We ate a quesadilla with avocado and salsa verde.
We woke up at 9:30am. And we need a nap already.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
10:40am: The newspapers and the mail made it inside.
We made an iced espresso and took the dogs outside again.
Now we’re chillin’ with the dogs in the Home Office
and we managed to fall down a Blues Brothers rabbit hole this morning.

“Briefcase Full of Blues” is the debut album by The Blues Brothers.
It was released on November 28, 1978, by Atlantic Records.
It was recorded live on September 9, 1978, at the Universal Amphitheatre
in Los Angeles, when the band opened for comedian Steve Martin.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

3:30pm: We took a nap with the dogs. We woke up.
We took the dogs outside and got a glass of juice.
And we just took the dogs outside again. And it is HOT.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

5:35pm: We took another nap with the dog. And we just woke up.
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We ordered a pizza delivery.
On The Menu: Extra-large pizza with sausage and meatball delivered!

9:00pm: And suddenly, we are not stressed anymore.

We drank an iced espresso. We entertained ourself with YouTube vids.
Now we’re chillin’ in the Home Office.

Watching the Bertcast with Bert Kreischer on Youtube:
kreischer

And we watched the film “Outlaws” on a Showtime network,
about a violent Australian motorcycle gang named The Copperheads.
AND WHY DID WE WATCH IT? WHY?
We wanted to see how bad it was going to be. And it was bad.
It was gritty and raw, (and really bad and boring too) with some good acting.
It was a lot more real than “Sons of Anarchy” which we enjoyed.
And it was almost “Cinema Verité”, shot like real life,
but really it was just amateur (headache-inducing) camera work.

The Bar at the Roof on Wilshire in West Los Angeles, California

First, a very important message for all my Friends:
PLEASE 
DRINK RESPONSIBLY!
GET HOME ALIVE, DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!
“KNOW WHEN TO SAY WHEN!”
“FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS DRIVE DRUNK!”

The Bar at El Torito Mexican Restaurant in Sherman Oaks, California

PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESE read these rules!!!

NOTE: We ripped these rules from the interweb.
“Learn it. Know it. Live it.”

1. If you owe someone money, always pay them back in a bar.
Preferably during Happy Hour.

2. Always toast before doing a shot.

3. Whoever buys the shots gets the first chance to offer a toast.

4. Change your toast at least once a month.

5. Buying someone a drink is five times better than a handshake.

The Casino Bar at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada

6. Buying a strange woman a drink is still cool. Buying all her drinks is really dumb.

7. Never bum more than one cigarette from the same person in one night.
NOTE: DON’T SMOKE CIGARETTES!

8. When the bartender is slammed, resist the urge to order a slightly-dirty,
very-dry, in-and-out, super-chilled half-and-half martini with a lemon twist.
Limit orders to beer, straight shots and two-part cocktails.

9. Get the bartender’s attention with eye contact and a smile.

10. DO NOT make eye contact with the bartender if you don’t want a drink.

227200841_2848826085380621_1411489795097638486_n

11. Unacceptable things to say after doing a shot:
“Great, now I’m going to get drunk.”
“I hate shots.”
“It’s coming back up.”

12. NEVER, ever tell your bartender they made your drink too strong.

13. If he makes it too weak, order a double next time. He’ll get the message.

14. If you offer to buy a woman a drink and she refuses, she does not like you.

15. If you offer to buy a woman a drink and she accepts, she still might not like you.

The Bar at the Lakeside Cafe in Encino, California

16. If she buys you a drink, she likes you.

17. If someone offers to buy you a drink, do not upgrade your liquor preference.

18. Always have a corkscrew in your house.

19. If you don’t have a corkscrew, push the cork down into the bottle with a pen.

20. Drink one girly drink in public….
and you will forever be known as the guy who drinks girly drinks.

21. Our parents were better drinkers than we are.

22. Never talk to someone in the restroom unless you’re doing the same thing:
urinating, waiting in line or washing your hands.

23. Girls hang out, apply make-up, and have long talks in the bathroom.
Men do not.

24. After your sixth drink, do not look at yourself in the mirror.
It will shake your confidence.

25. It is only permissible to shout ‘woo-hoo!’
if you are doing a shot with four or more people.

130304124242-big-lebowski-story-top

26. If there is a DJ, you can request a song only once per night.
If he doesn’t play it within half an hour, don’t approach him again.
If he does play it, don’t approach him again.

27. Learn how to make a rose out of a bar napkin.
You’ll be surprised how well it works.

28. If you can’t afford to tip, you can’t afford to drink in a bar.
Go to the liquor store.

29. If you owe someone twenty dollars or less, you may pay them back in beer.

30. Never complain about the quality or brand of a free drink.

1048525_677793648913871_47626874_o

Drink this.

31. If you have been roommates with someone more than six months,
you may drink all their beer, even if it’s hidden, as long as you leave them one.

32. You can have a shot of their hard liquor
only if the cap has been cracked and the bottle goes for less than $25.

33. The only thing that tastes better than free liquor is stolen liquor.

34. If you bring Old Milwaukee to a party, you must drink at least 2 cans
before you start drinking the imported beer in the fridge.

35. Learn to appreciate hangovers.
If it was all good times every jackass would be doing it.

Altitude Lounge in San Diego, California – Night

36. If you ever feel depressed, get a bartender’s guide
and then browse thru all the drinks you’ve never tried.

37. Try one new drink each week.

38. If you’re the bar’s only customer,
you are obliged to make small talk with the bartender.
Until he stops acknowledging you. Then you’re off the hook.
The same goes for him.

39. Never tip with coins that have touched you.
If your change is $1.50, you can tell the barmaid to keep the change,
but, once she has handed it to you, you cannot give it back.
To a bartender or cocktail waitress, small change has no value.

40. If you have ever told a bartender, “Hey, it all spends the same”
– You are a cheap ass.

The Bar at Kaleidoscope Pizzeria in Medford, Oregon

41. Anyone on stage or behind a bar is fifty percent better looking.

42. You can tell how hard a drinker someone is
by how close they keep their drink to their mouth.

43. A bar is a college, not a nursery. If you spill a beer, clean it up.
If you break a glass, wait for the staff to clean it up, then blame someone else.

44. Being drunk is feeling sophisticated without being able to say it.

45. It’s okay to drink alone.

George Thorogood LIVE – “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”
with Elvin Bishop at the Capitol Theatre on 7/5/1984

46. After three drinks, you will forget a woman’s name right after she tells you.
The rest of the night you will call her “baby” or “darling”.

47. Nothing screams ‘Gay’ louder than swirling an oversized brandy snifter.

48. Men don’t drink from straws. Unless you’re doing a Mind or Face Eraser.

49. If you do a shot, finish it. If you don’t plan to finish it, don’t accept it.

50. Never brood in a dance bar. Never dance in a dive bar.

The Bar at The Brickroom in Ashland, Oregon

51. Never play more than three songs by the same artist in a row.

52. Your songs will come on as you’re leaving the bar. (EVERYTIME!)

53. Never yell out jukebox selections to someone you don’t know.

54. Never lie in a bar. You may, however, grossly exaggerate and lean.

55. If you think you might be slurring a little, then you are slurring a lot.
If you think you are slurring a lot, then you are not speaking English.

funny_tough_lucky_drunk_leprechaun_sticker

56. Screaming, “SOMEONE BUY ME A DRINK!” has never worked.

57. For every drink, there is a 5% better chance you will get in a fight.
There is also a 3% better chance you will lose that fight.

58. Fighting an extremely drunk person when you are sober is HILARIOUS!

59. If you’re broke and a friend is “sporting you”,
you must laugh at all his jokes
and play wingman when he makes his move.

60. If you’re broke and a friend is “ragging on you”,
you may steal any drink he leaves unattended.

The Bar in Hollywood (that is no longer there)

61. Never rest your head on a table or the bar top.
It is the equivalent of voluntarily putting your head on a chopping block.

62. If you are trading rounds with a friend
and he asks if you want another, always say “YES”.
Once you fall out of sync you will end up buying more drinks than him.

63. If you’re going to hit on a member of the bar staff,
make sure you tip well before and after, regardless of her response.

64. The people with the most money are rarely the best tippers.

65. Before you die, single-handedly make one decent martini.

66. Asking a bartender “what beers are on tap?”
when the tap handles are right in front of you, is just like saying “I’m an idiot.”

67. Never ask a bartender “What’s good tonight?”
They do not fly Scotch in “fresh from the coast” every morning.

68. If there is a line for drinks at the bar,
get your damn drink and step the hell away.

69. If there is ever any confusion, the fuller beer is yours.

70. The patrons at your local bar are your extended family,
your father, your mother, your brothers and sisters.
Except you get to sleep with these sisters. And if you’re really drunk…. mother.

Poolside Tiki Bar in Las Vegas!

71. It’s acceptable, traditional, in fact, to disappear during a night of hard drinking.
You will mysteriously reappear, and your friends will understand. If they even notice.

72. Never argue your tab at the end of the night.
Remember, you’re hammered, and they’re sober.
It’s like a precocious five-year-old arguing the super-string theory with a physicist.
99.9% of the time you’re wrong and, either way, you’re going to come off as a jackass.

73. If you bring booze to a party, you must drink it or leave it.

74. If you hesitate more than three seconds after the bartender looks at you…..
you do not deserve a drink.

75. Beer makes you mellow, champagne makes you silly,
wine makes you dramatic, and tequila makes you felonious.

filepicker-lNYJU0ySCiEn5ktXU881_tequila
“Jose Cuervo, you are no friend of mine.”

76. The greatest thing a drunk can do is buy a round of drinks for a packed bar.

77. NEVER preface a conversation with your bartender
with “I know this is going to be a hassle, but . . .”

78. When you’re in a bar and drunk,
your boss is just another guy begging for a fat lip. Unless he’s buying.

79. If you are 86’d, do not return for at least three months.
To come back sooner makes it appear no other bar wants you.

80. Anyone with three or more drinks in his/her hands has the right of way.

Smuggler’s Cove Tiki Bar in San Francisco, California

81. If you’re going to drink on the job, DRINK VODKA.
It’s the no-tell liquor.

82. There’s nothing wrong with drinking before noon.
Especially if you’re supposed to be at work.

83. The bar clock moves twice as fast from midnight to last call.

84. An engraved flask is one of the best gifts you can ever give.
And make sure there’s something in it.

85. On the intimacy scale,
sharing a quiet drink is between a handshake and a kiss.

86. You will forget everyone of of these rules by your fifth drink.

The CoronaVirus Pandemic continues…..
there is no end, except “The End” for everyone.
611000+ United States citizens have died from COVID-19.
(and this number is under-reported , it’s actually ~900000 US DEATHS)
Trump, the GOP Traitors and FoxNews did this.

It’s the end of July 2021. Sixteen months of self-isolation.
SIX, almost seven, MONTHS since the January 6th Insurrection.
WE WANT JUSTICE! WE WANT ARRESTS! WE WANT EXPULSIONS!
TRUMP, Trump’s Family, Trump’s Stooges, AND THE GOP TRAITORS
ARE ALL GUILTY OF SEDITION AND TREASON! ARREST THEM NOW!
THEY ARE ALL GUILTY OF GENOCIDE AND CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY!

“People live one generation, your life lives for generations after,
your name lives on forever.”
– Yakuza tattoo

3:05am: So, we are still awake. We have been watching YouTube vids.
Maybe watching some TV too. It’s Friday morning now.
We are tired, so might be time for bed.

8:20am: We finally went to bed around 5:00am. And we didn’t sleep well.
We just woke up and we’re going back to bed soon….
The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside. We made an iced espresso.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

ETuxtaXXYAAVrNG1
We watched the end of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Opening Ceremony.
OMG IT WAS SO BORING. No audience in the stadium. SO BORING!
Jazzy piano instrumental. 50 Pictographs and an unsteady-cam….
Kabuki theatre performance….REALLY? And there were fireworks too.
GAVE US A HEADACHE IMMEDIATELY. Shaky camera and jump cut moves.
NBC just sucked this morning. And the NBC hosts suck too.

NOTE: If there is a Mike Lindell MyPillow commercial on during a show….
we will CHANGE THE CHANNEL. We are done watching your program.

10:05am: WE MUST MOTIVATE! We tried to go back to bed, but no luck.
We’ve spent the last 2 hours doing nothing. And we’re watching “Top Chef”.
And it’s making us hungry for breakfast.

11:30am: We drank another iced espresso.
We reheated and ate three slices of leftover pizza for brunch.
We drank a glass of cran-raspberry-orange juice.
217540168_4965316633494863_667563989275081013_n

12:40pm: We need to run errands. MUST GET DRESSED.

5:10pm: Back in our “lounge wear” and barefoot at home.
It was FUCKING HOT TODAY. Really HOT out.
Recapping the afternoon. We got dressed and went out at 2:00pm.
We ran errands. We went to the bank. We skipped the Post Office.
We came home. We took the dogs outside.

What’s cooking?
218640303_4965605750132618_1756670032467429122_n

We ventured into GW today and found a 50th anniversary copy
in almost new and unused condition for $2.25. Score.
(it was originally $2.99, but it was 25% off this week)
Paid cash. Left them the penny. No receipt required.

6:00pm: We almost fell asleep. FUCK.
The dogs got fed. The dogs barked. The dogs went outside.
We just ordered Thai food delivery for dinner…. estimated 45 mins.

The food was delivered on time. GOOD SHABBOS!

On The Menu: Thai food! BBQ chicken combo w/pad Thai noodles & vegetables,
BBQ rib combo w/fried rice & salad, and chicken satay w/peanut sauce
NOTE: We’re good customers, so they sent us some FREE egg rolls too.

Recapping Friday night. We ate and fell asleep. We woke up around 10:00pm and spent the night watching TV and surfing the interweb. We also worked on Blog Posts and played with the dogs. We fell asleep sometime before dawn.

8:00am: One more Saturday. We woke up before 6:00am.
We just published last week’s Blog Post (our previous Blog Post)
We drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We ate the leftover salad from last night with a little ranch dressing.

And then we just finished binge-watching the “Top Chef” finale
(Portland season 18) and the “Last Chance Kitchen” final episodes.
Such a great show and concept. And after 18 seasons it’s still great.
The chefs (the competitors, hosts, and the guest judges) are CHARACTERS!
The story line, editing, emotion, and the format make for exciting episodes.
SUCH AMAZING FOOD! Creative cooking ideas! Always makes us hungry.
And the winner is…. no, we won’t spoil it.

9:00am: We drank another cup of espresso.

Shit in the front hall
One more unsolved mystery
Which dog did the deed?

11:30am: FUCK. FUCK. FUCK. Just a little more drama.
With pet ownership comes great responsibility.
AND THAT’S ALL WE ARE GOING TO SAY ABOUT THAT TODAY.

Dog Days of Summer in Los Angeles

We were invited to dinner tonight. At a public restaurant in a busy part of town.
AND WE SAID “NO THANK YOU” and explained why…. CORONAVIRUS.
COVID-19 Delta Variant. “Breakthrough” virus. Public spaces. Public Restaurant.
Also said they shouldn’t be going out in public, and their kids shouldn’t too.
THERE IS ALREADY A PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY. Not going to go there.
We ran errands yesterday and encountered people not wearing masks,
even though the “mask mandate” is back in effect for Los Angeles. SCARY.

And now let’s do Tuesday in the next Blog Post.


Vaccines don’t stop you from spreading the virus!
Vaccines may protect you from getting really sick,
and may prevent death if you contract COVID-19.
YOU CAN STILL GET SICK AND DIE.
YOU CAN STILL SUFFER FROM LONG-TERM EFFECTS.
YOU CAN STILL GET OTHER PEOPLE SICK.

168090583_2801666060144262_5641567001358441992_n

COVID-19 is still the leading cause of death in the United States.
611000+ Reported Deaths in the United States from COVID-19
as of today.
64265+ Reported Deaths in California from COVID-19 as of today
53235+ Reported Deaths in New York from COVID-19 as of today
(these are the reported numbers, the true numbers are much higher)

NOTE: THERE IS ANOTHER REPORT THAT COVID-19 NUMBERS
IN THE US MAY HAVE BEEN UNDER-REPORTED BY AS MUCH AS 60%!
The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation
reports the number of COVID-19 DEATHS in the US at more than 900000
(that’s 57% higher than the official data according to their analysis)

WARNING! The Delta Variant is spreading!
It was previously known as the “Indian variant”
First detected in India last October and now spreading in more than 40 countries!

THE UNITED STATES WILL CONTINUE THE CURRENT TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS.
The CDC now advises Americans against travel to the United Kingdom!
The Department of Veterans Affairs will require healthcare workers to get COVID-19 vaccines.

Professional Cooking Tips!

Professional Cooking Tips! (ripped from the Interweb)

0d03511a2ce623e17e07786b61a016de

“To be a good cook you have to have a love of the good,
a love of hard work, and a love of creating.”
– Julia Child

And so, here are some great professional cooking tips and tricks
that we have collected from the interweb. We love to cook!
NOTE: We learned at an early age. We had a cooking class in junior high.
We chose apartment-style living at UCSC (with a kitchen so we
could cook for ourself) instead of dormitory living and “dining-hall” food.
We are not a professional chef, but some of our cooking is pro quality.

la-dd-a-conversation-with-david-gelb-about-che-001

Please check out our many recipes and other cooking related Blog Posts!
Use the links below or in the sidebar, or use the SEARCHBOX at the Top of Page.

And away we go….

ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS! (and wash them frequently while cooking)
CLEAN AND SANITIZE YOURSELF, YOUR KITCHEN, AND YOUR FOOD!
Learn about kitchen safety/sanitation and safe food storage and preparation.

Drink Coffee. Drink Water. (stay awake and alert, and always stay well hydrated)

Prevent the cutting board from slipping – place a wet paper towel underneath it.

ALWAYS USE A SHARP KNIFE!
Sharpen your knives before, clean your knives after.
Use a vegetable peeler for ultra-thin cuts and shaving.
Learn how to hold the knife properly!
Learn the proper knife technique for the type of food you are cutting!
(and there are great YouTube vids on “how to” cut up everything)

Heat your pans before cooking (so they are already HOT).
Preheat your oven for 20 minutes at temperature before cooking and baking.
Constant heat and proper temperature are necessary for professional cooking.

Baker’s Tip: Put a bowl of water inside the oven when baking.
The steam will help make a nice crispy bread crust.

do-land-olakes-indian-butter-boob-trick.w1456

Use eggs and butter at room temperature when making dough.
Take the eggs and butter out of the fridge the night before.

Caramelized sugar for baking.
Slightly frying the sugar will add a note of caramel to baked goods.
Heat sugar for one hour for a hint of caramel flavor,
or heat for up to five hours to create a deep and unique aroma and taste.

cookie-testing02text

Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals.
Add healthy fats, cut sodium, bump up your fiber,
and aim for a variety of colors on your plate.
(but never sacrifice good food for a bad “diet”)

Cook your aromatics first. 
Cook onions with salt. Add salt to reduce the smell. It will also cook them faster.
Add onions while the food is cooking.
Onions need time to develop their sweet flavor profile,
so they are one of the first ingredients to add to the pan.
NOTE: Garlic burns easily and the taste will turn bitter, so don’t add it early.

90810941c5c1e3443a0f3b3b67fba8ca_1000-images-about-chef-cooks-disney-characters-cook-clipart_236-317

Know when to add the herbs. 
Add dried herbs while cooking to enable the flavor to infuse the dish.
Fresh herbs should be added after the food is done cooking.
Fresh herbs will turn bitter if overcooked.

Use both salt and acid when seasoning.
Add the salt to your dish while you cook,
not before (and taste frequently) to avoid over-salting.
Use sugar as a seasoning.
It counteracts sour taste and will add a pleasant and rich flavor.

“The more you know, the more you can create.
There’s no end to imagination in the kitchen.” – Julia Child

food-chemistry-chemistry-of-a-lemon-1024x724

Add a dash of high-quality extra virgin olive oil to enhance your dish.
But don’t use olive oil in everything. Use pure vegetable oil for cooking.
Olive oil burns easily! It is not good for high-temp cooking and frying.

Brine your Meat! Brining makes for juicy meat.
Create a juicy texture and infuse rich flavor, and minimize
the chance of the meat drying out or being overcooked.

Marinate meat or fish in a plastic bag.
This ensures the meat or fish is coated evenly.
(also makes for an easy cleanup)



Sou Chan 1952

“Life, like a cookie jar, would soon be empty
if you continued to accept the good things it offers
and put in no good things in return.”
– Sou Chan (from The House of Chan) 1952

Cook steaks that are at room temperature and they will cook more evenly.
And not all cuts of meat take the same time to cook!
For quick cooking, choose tenderloins and steaks.
For longer and slower cooking, use a roast, brisket, or shoulder cut.

Cook steak without oil by placing it on its side when cooking.
Cooking meat on the side renders the fat and will add more flavor.
It will also create a nice crust for the edges.

Make burgers juicy by placing ice cubes in the middle of the patties.
Right before grilling, press a small piece of ice into the center of patty.
This prevents it from drying out while cooking.

wendys-wheres-the-beef

Read our previous Blog Post “Where’s The Beef?”

Heat the saute pan to a high temperature before searing meat or fish.
Pre-heat your pan and Don’t crowd the food when searing.
High heat is needed for perfectly seared meat and fish.
Do not to crowd the pan because it will lose the high cooking heat.
Place fish in pan with the skin side down first.
The high temp will quickly sear the skin and prevent it from sticking.

Use mayonnaise on fish to get a nice tasty crust.
Paint a small amount of mayo onto the fish with a pastry brush
and then season with salt before grilling. This will make a nice golden crust.

Make scrambled eggs creamy by adding mayonnaise.
Just add a teaspoon of mayo, it won’t change the flavor of the eggs.

Anthony-Bourdain-quotes-18-e1602880813514

Use sour cream to make great pancakes.
Add 2 tablespoons of sour cream to the pancake mix.
It will make the pancakes tasty and fluffy.

Peel hard boiled eggs fast and easy!
Just add a little baking soda before you boil them.
You can also use vinegar.
Both ingredients get inside the eggshell, and will make them peel faster.

Use a large frying pan instead of a big pot when cooking pasta.
The wider area of the pan will heat the water faster.
Pick the right size pan for the amount of pasta being cooked.
Add a little olive oil and salt the pasta to taste after the water is boiling.
The salt will season the pasta.
The oil prevents the pasta from sticking and adds flavor.
Cook pasta in the sauce to finish.
The sauce will coat the noodles and they will absorb the flavor.
If the sauce is too thick, just add a little pasta water to create the thickness desired.

chef 1

“Chef” with Jon Favreau, John Leguizamo, and Bobby Carnavale

Dry boil potatoes before mashing.
After boiling, remove potatoes from water and place in a clean heated pan.
Make sure they don’t cook anymore. Once dry, mash them.

Make Roasted Garlic in the microwave.
Place a whole bulb of garlic in a small bowl with a little oil and water.
Wrap the bowl in plastic wrap before microwaving. Cook until the garlic is soft.

To cook a perfect egg, you will only need three things: 
a thick-wall frying pan, a 1/2 tablespoon of butter, and an egg.
Cook for 4-5 minutes over a low heat. Don’t forget to add a pinch of salt.
Remember, eggs will continue to cook after being removed from the pan!

TIP: Use an egg slicer to cut and slice fruits.

Monday, July 19, 2021 – It’s the 200th day of the year!

mktplmonpromo

On this day in AD 64, The Great Fire of Rome begins
and it rages on for six days, and destroys half of the city.

On this day in 1943, during World War II,
Rome was bombed by 500 Allied Aircraft.

Today is the 87th Anniversary of The Original Farmer’s Market in Los Angeles.
Located at Fairfax and 3rd in Hollywood/West Hollywood.

1:20am: We finally got hungry enough to make some food at 1:00am.
On The Menu: BBQ steak (rib-eye) & jack cheese w/sautéed onions
on a toasted sesame bagel with a dill pickle
215880535_4951030291590164_2092221714362353656_n

2:15am: So, we’ve been bouncing back and forth between TV and the interweb.
Podcasts, YouTube, “Dune”, documentaries, news, “Two and a Half Men”, etc.
And we binge-watched the first season of “The Mandalorian” on Thursday.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

8:15am: We woke up around 6:30am. We took the dogs outside.
We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside. We got the newspapers.
We drank an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
And now we’re awake and in the Home Office. Fuckin’ Monday morning.
Read our previous Blog Post “A Case of the Mondays?”

9:10am: We took the dogs outside again.
We drank another iced espresso.
We ate a toasted sesame bagel with cream cheese.

12:20pm: We took the dogs outside. We scooped the poop. We got the mail.
We put more water in the swimming pool…. but there might be a leak.
That’s a big problem if the pool is leaking! And it’s also really HOT outside.
!HACE MUCHO CALOR!
The housekeeper is here cleaning. The dogs are in the bedroom.
And we have local errands to run that we should have finished an hour ago.
Fuckin’ Monday.

208805362_1576678796010034_8356502406251992041_n

3:40pm: Well, after spending a HOT time outside, we got a case of the “fuckits”.
And we said “FUCK IT” and then we got undressed and took a nap.
No errands today. The housekeeper finished and left. We slept for a little bit.
We woke up and took the dogs outside. Now chillin’ again in the Home Office.
And we’ll do those errands tomorrow. Maybe.

There’s a brush fire burning in Flores Canyon in Topanga near Malibu….
(and at 6:30pm it’s pretty much contained)

There was a pursuit! First he’s going to rob someone with a machete,
then he’s going run from the police, hit a couple spike strips, still try to get away,
and then smoke a cigarette while the LAPD waits to arrest him.
Surrender when you feel like it. Suspect in custody.

6:30pm: We took a nap with the dogs. We woke up. We prepped their supper.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
It’s still really HOT out. We drank another iced espresso.

We heated up a meat pie. We ate it, but it sucked. And we’re still hungry.
We thought it was chicken, but it was beef? and mushrooms. BLEH.
218937533_4956139147745945_5069727481076286309_n

10:30pm: Fleas! And now we have fleas. The little girl just got a flea bath.
She went on vacation and came back with fleas….  we don’t have words.
Can’t deal with biting insects. And can’t deal with the other dogs right now.

The TOKYO 2020 2021 OLYMPICS begin this week.
217496361_4949536761739517_3742050912911376299_n
More athletes have tested positive for COVID-19 in Japan.
(71 cases among athletes, staff, and support personnel)
The Olympics will go forward despite the CoronaVirus Delta Variant
and rising case numbers in Japan and worldwide.
(1071 New Cases in Tokyo yesterday = case numbers are rising!)

NOTE: The TSA screened 2.2Million passengers yesterday (Sunday).


Tuesday, July 20, 2021 – Happy Birthday Bob!
Happy birthday Carlos Santana! Oye Como Va!”

On this day in 1969, Humans walked on The Moon. (maybe)
Neil Armstrong: “That’s one step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” 

219379961_4472485876096462_8246988265435095291_n

We ate that crappy meat pie for dinner.
And then we got hungry after midnight for some good food.
So, we banged out some real dinner at 1:00am.

On the Menu: Steak soft taco with salsa verde
219661105_4956138294412697_2869069672080848085_n

We woke up early. The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
And the dogs have fleas. We watched the launch on TV this morning.

216274310_10158385512503575_8778950766773013601_n

6:35am: Blue Origin “First Human Flight” (civilian space flight)
Amazon Billionaire Jeff Bezos and 3 other humans went for a ride.
A REALLY EXPENSIVE RIDE. 66 miles high, under 11 minutes.
What was the purpose? Why? And seriously, they didn’t go to space.
They went to an imagined distance that we call “space”. And they didn’t die.
220073538_10215915990207575_1351813359309672544_n
And Sir Richard Branson with “Virgin Galactic” shot his wad last week.

NOTE: When Bezos did land, the crowd around the ‘capsule’ was incredibly white.
White guys wearing cowboy hats and popping bottles of champagne in the dirt,
the only people of color we saw were the media people covering the event.

“Jeff Bezos’ recreational space trip cost $2,540,000 per minute,
and we’re still arguing about whether the billionaires need to be taxed.”
– Robert Reich

WEARAFUCKINGMASK! And wear it all the time.
The “rules” for mask wearing are ridiculous! On here, off there….
Indoors. Outdoors? WHO IS SAFE? Where are you safe?
99.5% of current COVID-19 DEATHS are unvaccinated people.
Too many people are still not fully vaccinated.
The Delta Variant is spreading rapidly. Now over 80% of cases.

Screen Shot 2021-07-23 at 03.28.09

7:30am: We are in a weird space this morning.
8:00am: We just washed the other little girl. She got a nice flea bath.
And we are also doing a load of laundry with all the cage bedding.

8:40am: Watched the Jeff and Mark Bezos interview with Anderson Cooper earlier.
Now watching the exact same interview with Michael Strahan EXACTLY THE SAME!
SAME QUESTIONS. SAME ANSWERS. 
Total Circle Jerk.

9:30am: We took the dogs outside. And now they’re all in the Home Office.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

4:15pm: We took a nap with the dogs. We woke up and took the dogs outside.
We played with them and had them in the Home Office. They’re all good today.
It’s HOT. We wasted another day. How is it after 4:00pm already?
We made/ate some lunch.

On The Menu: Chicken and cheese street tacos on corn tortillas
with salsa verde and guacamole and an iced espresso to drink.
217573146_4956137814412745_2533019810220447312_n

7:50pm: Okay, here’s the Tuesday update.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs went outside.
We surfed the interweb and fell asleep for a little bit.
JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ. We woke up around 11:00pm.
We made and ate dinner after midnight….sometime around 1:00am.
On The Menu: Bone-in rib-eye steak with sauteed onions, steamed broccoli,
and shoestring potatoes, with cran-raspberry-orange juice

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.


Wednesday, July 21, 2021

5:30am: We fell asleep for a little bit and woke up around 4:30am.
We started binge-watching “The Mandalorian” season 2.
6:45am: The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.

7:35am: We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

219290875_10222999720813987_6786578080903487255_n

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

10:20am: We went back to bed. We woke up.
And there’s a pursuit on right now!
Burglary suspect driving a BMW around Upland, California.
He parked and bailed into a backyard under some trees.
Now he’s surrounded and hiding…. We made an iced espresso.
212089828_4958437664182760_4018819267505602672_n
11:20am: Well, everyone cut away from the yard to yard search.
So, we may or may not hear what happened. And that sucks.
When the media cuts away and then it’s over before it’s over.
The helicopters run out of gas, and there’s no backup to cover.
We are left wondering and fully unsatisfied without a conclusion.
So, now, on with our day. UPDATE: Suspect in custody.

Harvey Weinstein is back in Los Angeles to face more charges here.
RAPE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT. Harvey raped and got away with it for years.
He was already convicted in New York and will die in prison,
and his lawyers just pleaded “Not guilty” in Downtown LA…. SCUMBAG.

There’s MASSIVE FLOODING in Germany and in China! Climate change is real.
Wildfires are burning throughout the western United States.
Northern California and Oregon are ON FIRE again.
DROUGHT and BURN CONDITIONS are the worst they’ve ever been.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZ.

3:15pm: We took a nap. We woke up and took a nap. We ate half a dill pickle.
And the gardener came. (leaf blower) We woke up. We made an iced espresso.

ANOTHER PURSUIT!
Chattering like hens, speculating, talking shit about stuff they don’t know about,
totally irresponsible journalism! JUST REPORT THE FACTS AND DON’T GUESS!

Got off the 110 in Pasadena, the Pasadena PD tried a PIT Maneuver and popped the rear tire.
The guy tried to get away, got back on the freeway, tire gave out, slow speed pursuit, and then the gut hit two freeway signs and then a highway divider. Stopped. Trapped. And he quickly surrendered. Suspect in custody.
Screen Shot 2021-07-21 at 16.04.20

4:30pm: “You are the father.” Maury never gets old…. really?
Switch to the local news. It’s HOT. And it might rain on Monday.

5:20pm: The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed.
We took a nice hot shower. We had a pizza delivered.
We did a load of laundry. We did a little organizing.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

On The Menu: BBQ chicken pizza from CPK
and some frozen chocolate custard for dessert later.

outside the Biograph Theater in Chicago, Illinois.

NATIONAL HAMMOCK DAY

NATIONAL RAT CATCHER’S DAY – “Don’t forget to pay the piper!”
National Rat Catcher’s Day commemorates the story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin.
It’s also an opportunity to thank your pest control professionals (exterminators).

8:25am: We are awake. Hello Thursday morning. How is it Thursday?
We got woken up by the trash truck out front and the little dog in the bed.
We took the dog outside. We went into the kitchen. We took the dog outside.
We made and drank a cup of espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

11:30am: We drank an iced espresso. The housekeeper is here.
The dogs are in the Home Office with us and they are napping now.
It looks like a dog bomb went off up in here. “The Dog Days of Summer”

7:40pm: Recapping Thursday afternoon and evening now.
We meant to do the errands we didn’t do on Monday, then Tuesday….
but we got a case of the “fuckits” and didn’t do anything again today.
We joined the club for a late lunch. Then we fell asleep around 5:30pm.
We just woke up and made an iced espresso.
The dogs went outside. The dogs got fed. The dogs are chillin’.
On The Menu: Club sandwich with sweet potato fries and frilly toothpicks:

We waited and then tried to order Thai food…. closed.
Tried to order Chinese food…. closed. So, we ordered a pizza and a salad.

On The Menu: Extra-large pizza with sausage and meatball and an antipasto salad

Friday, July 16, 2021 – World Snake Day!

image-placeholder-title

On this day in 1969, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins
launched aboard Apollo 11 (July 16–24, 1969), the first spaceflight
with the objective of landing humans on the Moon.
On July 21, 1969, Armstrong became the first man to walk on the lunar surface,
at 02:56 UTC, and Aldrin became the second man 19 minutes later.

1:35am: We ate and watched episode 8 of “The Mandalorian”.
And now we’re watching episode 9…… it’s a “Deadwood” reunion!

2:30am: We took the dogs outside.
And now they’re back in the Home Office with us.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

7:20am: Okay, we slept, but it wasn’t good sleep. We woke up.
We made a double iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

12:05pm: And we’re awake again. We fell asleep and slept. It was good.
But now it’s noon. It’s a beautiful day outside. We got the newspapers.
We took the dogs outside. And now we’re updating this Blog Post.

NOTE: When we took the dogs outside, we noticed that the water in the swimming pool was very low. So we turned on the water from the hose and put it in the pool. And then for the next 20 minutes we kept chanting “Pool Water” so we wouldn’t let it run all day long. And we just went back outside and turned it off. Good job!

A sunny Friday Afternoon in mid-July.

216881155_10158126806057539_770587386086454715_n
The stature of Confederate General Robert E. Lee
was finally removed from Charlotte, North Carolina, today.

BLACKLIVESMATTER!

1:20pm: We made another iced espresso. We ate some dry salami.

10:30pm: Chore Boy showed up and vacuumed. He did some laundry too.
We gave the little boy a bath with baking soda, because he’s been itching.
We ordered a pizza delivery.

On The Menu: Extra-large pizza with sausage and meatball. Good Shabbos!

Saturday, July 17, 2021 – Happy 66th Birthday Disneyland!
On this day in 1955, DISNEYLAND OPENED TO THE PUBLIC!

1452534_10152103057974090_664791663_n

“To all who come to this happy place; welcome. Disneyland is your land.
Here age relives fond memories of the past…and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America…with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”
– Walt Disney’s Disneyland Opening Day Speech

214542250_4945932165433310_8829639856895350938_n

12:15am: We fell asleep after pizza for an hour. And then we woke up.
We took the dogs outside. And now we’re all chillin’ in the Home Office

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

8:45am: We are awake. We woke up early (around 6:00am).
We prepped the dog’s food. We folded some laundry.
We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We got the newspapers. We drank an iced espresso.
Now we are chillin’ in the Home Office and the dogs are sleeping.

217020778_4947017671991426_2781761364832285473_n

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

2:35pm: We went back to bed and slept. We woke up.
We took the dogs outside. They went back to sleep.
We are awake. And we are hungry now.
We took the dogs outside again. And now they’re sleeping again.
We drank another iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.

4:35pm: We got the mail.
Our regular postman must be on vacation, because our mail is coming late in the day,
instead of in the morning, so the substitute must be doing the route in reverse. Kinda sucks. And it’s HOT outside, and it’s noticeable just going from the door to the mailbox at 4:30pm. We ate two pieces of cold leftover pizza. And all is quiet on the Home Front and in the neighborhood.

110319859_3843452635681274_3582856459062045494_n

5:45pm: It’s currently 83 degrees outside.
We just prepped the dogs food for supper.
We made a double iced espresso.

6:30pm: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside. And now we’re back in the Home Office.

“Hey, Saturday Night!”

There was a guy dancing on top of Knott’s Berry Farm tonight!

215887196_4947573768602483_5286759269678387871_n

“At approximately 7:23pm, Knott’s Berry Farm became aware of a male who had accessed a unauthorized area and climbed the Supreme Scream tower. Park personnel alerted local law enforcement and emergency responders who are now on site. The guest descended the tower at 8:55pm and is now currently safely on the ground in police custody. No other information is available at this time. The safety of our guests is always our top priority.”

On The Menu: 2 pieces of cold leftover pizza for dinner around 10:30pm.
And we scrounged around in the fridge after midnight for some stuff to eat.
Dry salami, dill pickle, toasted croissant, and some trail mix.

11:59pm: The “NEW MASK REQUIRED INDOORS”
(regardless of vaccination status) is now in effect in Los Angeles County!

Sunday, July 18, 2021 – SUNDAY! SUNDAY!
It’s the 199th day of the year,
and as of today, there are 166 days until 2022.

Happy Birthday Hunter Stockton Thompson! RIP
Born July 18, 1937, Louisville, Kentucky
Died (self inflicted gun shot) February 20, 2005, Woody Creek, Colorado.

2:20am: We’re still awake on Sunday Morning (Saturday night continued)
2:50am: And we’re still awake.

zodiac-glyphs

Do you believe in astrological horoscopes?
Here’s ours for today:
“Your home routine will be interrupted.
A small appliance might break down or a minor breakage could occur.
Perhaps someone unexpected will knock on your door?”

1024px-Zodiac_(PSF)

4:20am: Yep, still awake.
5:05am: We took the dogs outside. Now they’re sleeping in the bedroom.

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

11:05am: We crashed hard as the sun was rising. And we slept until 10:30am.
We woke up. We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We made an iced espresso. Drink Coffee. Drink Water.
We got the newspapers. Morning stuff is done.

2:00pm: We took the dogs outside again. It’s really HOT. And really bright.
And so we are chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs on Sunday afternoon.
TV and the interweb again. Staying entertained.
3:00pm: We made an iced espresso. We ate a piece of poundcake.
4:50pm: We took a little nap. We woke up.
We ate two pieces of cold leftover pizza.

7:30pm: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs. We took the dogs outside.
We took a little nap. We woke up, and the dogs are sleeping.

11:11pm: We took the dogs outside again. We made one more iced espresso.

Read our previous Blog Posts about Coffee!

And now let’s talk about that horoscope…. nothing broke, thank you. BUT:
Our step-sister and her family stopped by on the way back from San Francisco.
They had taken our SUV on the weekend road trip, and left their car at the house.
We also received a special package for them yesterday that they picked up tonight.
LA to SF – there and back. That’s a lot of driving for a weekend in San Francisco.
So, it wasn’t unexpected, but we didn’t know when they would be coming back.
So they showed up at 10:00pm, we took care of the business, they switched cars,
got the package, we chatted for a while and then they drove away.
And so my “Home Routine” of doing nothing on Sunday night was interrupted.
Take it for what it’s worth.

1:10pm: We fell asleep and woke up at Midnight. We took the dog outside.
And now we’re awake again.

NOTE: If there is a Mike Lindell MyPillow commercial on during a show….
we will CHANGE THE CHANNEL. We are done watching your program.

We’re up for 10 MINUTES! We told you we didn’t sleep.
That’s your cue. Distract the dog. Pick a fight. Bang the dishes.
TIME OUT. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.

We made and drank a double espresso and ate a piece of poundcake.
And now we are fuckin’ done with Wednesday before 9:00am.

Was amused this morning and played a little game.

2:55pm: We did go back to bed and we took a nap with the dog.
We needed to sleep. And then we woke up. Still Wednesday.
We took the dogs outside. We drank a cup of espresso.
We took the dogs outside again. The gardener is here. It’s HOT.
We drank another cup of espresso and made/ate some lunch.

The Hawk (there’s a pair) in the tree has been screeching and squawking a lot.
So, today we got lucky and got a pic of it “diving for lunch”
Perched in the tree, and then in flight with our cheapo cell phone.

Lunchtime!
On The Menu:
a chicken and cheese sandwich on toasted French bread,
dill pickle, celery, cherries, and watermelon

8:25pm: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside. We drank an iced espresso.

“You will be happy to find some quiet moments
to enjoy some peace and quiet to relax”

2:30am: We decided it was time to finally watch “The Mandolorian” on Disney+.
NOTE: We watched episode 1 twice and then fell asleep with the dogs.

The Mandalorian and The Child

7:20am: We woke up. We took the dogs outside.
We set up their breakfast. We got the newspapers.
And The Hawk was screeching from the top of a telephone pole out front.
We made an iced espresso and ate a toasted sesame bagel with cream cheese.
Drink Coffee. Drink Water. – “This is the way.”
We watched episode 2 and 3 of “The Mandalorian” and drank the iced espresso.

9:00am: We took the dogs outside. We fed the dogs.
We took the dogs outside again.
9:40am: Okay, we wasted enough of the morning…..
10:10am: We took the dogs outside. We made another iced espresso.
The housekeeper is here to clean up after the family party and long week.
So, we are back to chillin’ in the Home Office with the dogs again.

11:20: tick tock, tick tock

Screen Shot 2021-07-15 at 14.42.55

3:05pm: We took a nap with the dogs and missed a pursuit!
There was a pursuit that ended on the side of the 138 out in the boonies.
Suspect in custody after trailing that bumper for miles.
We waited for the housekeeper to go.
And we watched episode 4 of “The Mandolorian”.
We took one dog outside and then we gave him lots of love.
Big Dog is still sleeping and we are chillin’ once again in the Home Office.
But we are hungry now, and it’s time to eat some food,
and also maybe run an errand or two.

3:35pm: We just made an iced espresso to drink,
and we put some chicken flautas in the oven to cook for lunch.

On The Menu: Chicken flautas with salsa verde

9:00pm: Recapping Thursday.
And we took a nap with the dogs.
And we woke up and went back to bed.
And we took another nap…. and woke up after 8:30pm!
We took the dogs outside and fed the dogs. Late supper.
And we took the dog outside again.
Now we’re back in the Home Office. The dogs are sleeping again.

11:45pm: We watched more episodes (5,6, and 7) of “The Mandalorian”. 
And we made some dinner. We don’t want to waste food.
And there was a lot of food leftover from the dinner party.
Besides the Cornish game hens, there was chicken taco meat,
and there’s still a whole Costco rotisserie chicken in the fridge.

On The Menu: Chicken taco with salsa verde

Are you FULLY VACCINATED*?
GET VACCINATED if you haven’t yet!
*FULLY VACCINATED means TWO WEEKS after the second dose! 

You are not fully vaccinated after the first dose,
and you are not fully vaccinated until TWO WEEKS after the second dose.
TWO WEEKS AFTER THE SECOND DOSE!
Vaccines don’t stop you from spreading the virus!
Vaccines may protect you from getting really sick,
and may prevent death if you contract COVID-19.
YOU CAN STILL GET SICK AND DIE.
YOU CAN STILL SUFFER FROM LONG-TERM EFFECTS.
YOU CAN STILL GET OTHER PEOPLE SICK.
